You know the saying ' the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...' Well, in the case of my sweet niece the apple does fall far from the tree... I would swear that she is my daughter :) She has a sweat angelic disposition, just like her mom - but, she also has a spark of her Aunt Moo (yes, that is my nickname - story for another time). That spark is a little sassy and a little feisty. Her mom, my sister, is very calm and kind and I have heard her described as one of the nicest people on the planet (actually, I have heard that from 2 people - so, there must be some truth to it). When I was little, my family use to call me little Auga. Auga was my Grandpa's sister. Let me tell you, I met her when I was a little older, and I could definitely see the personality resemblance between Auga and I. She was as sweet as pie - but, she came with a punch! I have always taken pride in that nickname. I quickly learned when my little niece was walking and talking that it was time to pass the torch.
Now, my little apple of a niece is not all sass. She is as thoughtful and considerate as she is beautiful. She is already a worrier and wants to be sure you always leave her house with food and as happy as possible. She is as smart as a whip and very inquisitive. I love her girlie tendencies (very different from my 'all boy'). She is Mama's little helper and Daddy's little girl.
I am intrigued as to what she will be when she grows up - however, she can take her time. We like just as she is. Our sweet, feisty little Auga. We all love you to pieces! Happy Birthday Sweetie!
